FPT Software’s digital transformation platform akaBot has beaten several tough competitors from Viettel and VNPT to claim the ‘Best Digital Product’ award. akaBot was developed in 2018, using robots that can imitate human actions to complete everyday’s repeated tasks on the computer, such as typing and clicking, with OCR (Optical Character Recognition), Chatbot, Voice and AI integration.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, akaBot has helped both domestic and global clients save HR costs, maintain business continuity and prepare for the recovery phase post-pandemic. In December 2020, akaBot was listed in Gartner Peer Insights, alongside twenty other established RPA providers, namely UiPath, Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism.

Also recognized at the Make in Viet Nam awards are digital solutions from OneATS,, vnEdu 4.0 and AI Smart Warning.

According to Dr. Mai Liem Truc, former Permanent Deputy Minister of the Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology (PTIT), Vietnamese solution-providers are definitely capable of being applied in global markets.

Venturing overseas at the moment will make Vietnamese businesses get on the same wave-length with global enterprises. Making this move will demonstrate how pro-active, ambitious and confident we are.
